Basic Microbiology

The technological development in sequencing, microscopy as well as microfluidics and their combination have fostered the progresses in basic research in microbiology. They allow both a deeper understanding of microbial physiology in conditions of stress or infections and a more quantitative description as many genes or many microbes are studied simultaneously. Research in basic microbiology in the Microb’UP network are at the front of this research and cover a vast array of fields including the study of :

-the basic mechanisms controlling microbial replication and maintenance.

-the complex molecular mechanism at play in regulation. 

-the regulation of stress responses including responses to drugs.

-the regulation of virulence and escape mechanisms during infections.

-the interactions with host immune system.
